Forum: etree Subject: separating the mp3's from the shns

Is it possible to put the ogg/mp3 files in a separate sub-directory for each show? When using FTP, I used to just click on a directory and download it. Now I have to ctrl-click each track I want, so I don't grab the mp3's as well. I like the mp3 idea (although it goes against the whole principle of etree, but I digress), but it makes downloading shns a pain.

We made a conscious decision to leave the directory structure flat.

Brad LeBlanc posted some instructions on using SmartFTP to select only files of a certain type. Search for the forums for that.

Otherwise, I suggest you just use HTTP - download the ZIP files - these are static, so resuming is supported.

I don't use Smart FTP, I think it sucks.

Downloading a zip file seems like a waste of time. Now you have to unzip it and you need twice as much room on your HD. What happened to good old FTP?

Oh well, it was worth a try. Thank you for providing this awesome service, and trying to make it better. However, I think separating the shns from the other files makes sense.

My FTP client has a clickable 'size' column - one click and presto-changeo, all my SHNs are in one group and all my mp3's are in another...

Give it a shot, it's been really useful for me so far.
